Development of a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Mobile Universal Surface Explorer (MOUSE)
The purpose of the project is to develop a mobile NMR unit that can be used to determine pore size distribution of geological samples. Standard NMR machines are fairly large, expensive, and have a restricted sample size. A NMR MOUSE can be transported to take quicker preliminary readings on large samples, with decreased cost. This work is focused on the design aspect of creating an NMR MOUSE, future work will go into the build process.
